pancho and lefty

livin' on the road my friend, gonna keep you free and clean
now you wear your skin like iron and your breath's as hard as kerosene
you weren't your mamas only boy but her favorite one it seems
she began to cry when you said goodbye and sank unto your dreams

Pancho was a bandit boy, horse was fast as polished steel
wore his gun outside his pants for all the honest world to feel
Pancho met his match you know on the deserts down in Mexico
nobody heard his dying word, ahh but that's the way it goes.

all the Federales say, could have had him any day
they only let him go so long, out of kindness i suppose

Lefty he can't sing the blues, all night long like he used to
dust that Pancho's bed down south, it ended up in Lefty's mouth
the day they lay poor Pancho low, Lefty split for Ohio
where he got the bread to go, ahh there ain't nobody knows

poets tell how Pancho fell, Lefty's livin' in a cheap hotel
desert's quiet and Clevelend's cold and so the story ends we're told
Pancho needs your prayers it's true, but save a few for Lefty too
he only did what he had to do and now he's growing old

all the Federales say, could have had him any day
they only let him go so long, out of kindness i suppose

flyin' shoes

day's full of rain
sky's coming down again
i get so tired
of these same old blues
same old song
baby it won't be long
'fore I'll be tying on
my flyin' shoes
flyin' shoes
'til I'll be tying on
my flyin' shoes

spring only sighed
summer had to be satisfied
fall is a feeling
that i just can't lose
i'd like to stay
maybe watch a winter day
turn the green water
to white and blue
flyin' shoes
flyin' shoes
'til I'll be tying on
my flyin' shoes

the mountain moon
forever sets too soon
being alone
is all the hills can do
alone and then
her silver sails again
and they will follow in
their flyin' shoes
flyin' shoes
and they will follow in
their flyin' shoes

day's full of rain
sky's coming down again
i get so tired
of these same old blues
same old song
baby it won't be long
'fore I'll be tying on
my flyin' shoes
flyin' shoes
'til I'll be tying on
my flyin' shoes

nothin'

hey mama, when you leave
don't leave a thing behind
i don't want nothin'
i can't use nothin'

take care into the hall
and if you see my friends
tell 'em i'm fine
not usin' nothin'

almost burned out my eyes
threw my ears down to the floor
i didn't see nothin'
i didn't hear nothin'

i stood there like a block of stone
knowin' all i had to know
and nothin' more
friends, that's nothin'

brothers our troubles are
locked in each others arms
and you'd better pray
that they never find you

'cause your back ain't strong enough
for burdens doublefold
they'd crush you down
down into nothin'

bein' born is goin' blind
buyin' down a thousand times
to echoes strung
on pure temptation

sorrow and solitude
these are the precious things
and the only words
that are worth rememberin'

rake

well i used to wake and run with the moon
i lived like a rake and a young man
i covered my lovers with flowers and wounds
my laughter the devil would frighten
the sun she would come and beat me back down
but every cruel day had its nightfall
i'd welcome the stars with wine and guitars
full of fire and forgetful

my body was sharp, the dark air clean
and outrage my joyful companion
whisperin' women how sweet did they seem
kneelin' for me to command them
and time was like water but i was the sea
i'd have never noticed it passin'
except for the turnin' of night into day
and the turnin' of day into cursin'

would you look at me now, don't think i don't know
what all your eyes are a sayin'
does he want us to believe these ravings and lies
they're just tricks that his brains been a playin'?
a lover of women he can't hardly stand
he trembles he's bent and he's broken
i've fallen it's true but I say unto you
hold your tongues until after i've spoken

i was takin' my pride in the pleasures i'd known
i laughed and thought i'd be forgiven
but my laughter turned 'round eyes blazin' and said
my friend, we're holdin' a wedding
i buried my face but it spoke once again
the night to the day we're a bindin'
and now the dark air is like fire on my skin
and even the moonlight is blinding
